Some people think fertilizing a lawn involves picking a random bag of fertilizer at a big box store, and throwing it all over the grass. The truth is that method essentially involves shooting blindly in the dark. Your lawn is unique. The soil composition changes over time, and what kind of fertilizer you use will impact that. With the wrong fertilizer, you might not be replenishing the minerals your grass needs to be healthy.
When selecting a fertilizer, you need to weigh three prominent nutrients all lawns need:
While nitrogen is the most important of the three, using too much can trigger an explosion of top growth, which leads to a variety of problems. If you look at a bag of fertilizer, the chain of three numbers on it tells how much nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium are in the mix. To accurately know which kind your lawn needs, you must not only assess the grass and its health, but also the soil composition. What fertilizer you use is also affected by the season. You’ll use one type for the spring, summer, fall, etc. For example, winterizer fertilizers contain higher potassium levels, helping the grass to endure extreme cold. As you’re probably beginning to understand, selecting the best fertilizer for your lawn is anything but simple. The needs of your grass are constantly changing, and most people simply lack the knowledge and training to make an educated decision. That’s where we come in. Our technicians can examine your lawn and properly determine what fertilizer to apply and when. You’ll love the results, as your grass becomes greener, thicker, and overall healthier.
Most people hate the sight of weeds in their lawn, but they don’t know what to do about them. Weeds are more than just eyesores. They pose other dangers to a lawn, including:
- Crowding out grass
- Consuming water
- Competing for sunlight
- Sapping soil nutrients
Essentially, weeds weaken and even kill your lawn. Getting rid of them can be a tricky process. Just when you think you have the problem under control, weed populations tend to explode. Leverage our experience with controlling weeds. We have proven methods and the follow-through to keep the weeds out of your lawn for the long run.
